Medically reviewed by Last updated on Jun 21, 2021.

Generic name: BENZOYL PEROXIDE 0.5mg in 1g;
Dosage form: cream / wash

SE BPO 5.5% Cream and SE BPO 7% Wash should be used once or twice daily on the affected areas. Frequency of use should be adjusted to obtain the desired clinical response. If you see medication or white residue on skin after application of SE BPO 5.5% Cream, you are applying too much. Gentle cleansing of the affected areas with a mild cleanser prior to application of SE BPO 5.5% Cream may be beneficial. Clinically visible improvement will normally occur by the third week of therapy. Maximum lesion reduction may be expected after approximately eight to twelve weeks of drug use. Continuing use of the drug is normally required to maintain a satisfactory clinical response.

SE BPO 5.5% Cream: Using the foam pad applicator, apply the SE BPO 5.5% Cream by rubbing it in small circular motions on affected areas. Dispose of each applicator after single use only.

SE BPO 7% Wash: Shake well before using. Wet skin areas to be treated; apply SE BPO 7% Wash by massaging gently into skin for 10-20 seconds, working into a full lather. Rinse thoroughly and pat dry.
